Be careful coming home tonight- BIG change


If you park in the lower car park then be extra careful coming home tonight.

CYP have started the change that means you cannot get to your driveway from Bowen Cres or St Kilda Rd.  Tonight you may be able to squeeze through but certainly tomorrow you’ll have to go in and out via Bowen Lane

It will be a big problem until they have Albert Rd access again – planned for Friday Dec 7.  To go towards the city on Kings Way, you will have to do the big loop – Bowen Lane / Kings Way, Bowen Cres, St Kilda Rd, Albert Rd

Sorry for the lack of warning – it was in a notice some weeks back but I thought the dates had moved like all other dates.

..and you thought you had a tough job today

P1230831We have had issues with cockies eating part of the building facade for some years.  The good news is that we have a solution but the installation will not start until mid-January.

In the meantime, a part of the facade (cosmetic only) was in danger of falling.  So we had a couple of guys (professional abseilers from Skyhooks) carefully remove it for us.  For those of you not in Melbourne, it is wet and cold here today

Here is the damage
